We owe Williams’ existence and its excellence to the support of alumni and parents. That support saved the college 200 years ago, and today our Society of Alumni is among the strongest and most active alumni organizations in the world. Parents and families join alumni in feeling a sense of ownership and responsibility for the institution, and now their collective influence will help shape the Williams of the 21st century.

Gifts to the alumni and parents funds may be unrestricted—and used to help Williams meet its highest priorities—or designated specifically to support academic excellence, the arts, athletics, financial aid, student life, or sustainability.
